Vintage Trailers: Still the Coolest Caravans on Road
Hawley Bowlus, an aviation designer responsible for the Spirit of St. Louis piloted by Charles Lindberg, designed the Bowlus Road Chief. Only 80 were produced making an original not only incredibly rare but crazy expensive. A 1934 Papoose recently sold at auction for over $93,000; its original price was $750. The caravans were designed with traveling salesmen in mind, and they only weighed 700 pounds.
